I am sure that many of us have seen some chunk of forum activity being lost to Facebook. At the behest of many of my subscribers, I too created a Facebook group for the board. Now I see activity there instead of my board and I see it disappear to the inaccessibility of the Facebook haze instead of safely archived on my board.
I would like to hear from those experienced in Facebook API/Integrations or related content scraping of possible methods to sync, scrape, download, digest a FB Group activity to appear onto my board database. Single direction is perfectly fine. I imagine adding a new forum category called Facebook, read-only for simplicity that crons every 30 minutes.
I can easily picture the opposite scenario. Using the digests mod, you can send a daily summary of board activity to the FB Group email where all the post links take people back to the board to read more. This is great but does not capture what happens on FB directly.
I have successfully bi-directionally synced a couple of related Yahoo groups to my board, but Facebook content and useful integration eludes me. Bi directional mirroring to FB Group would be very useful for board owners. Maybe it's time for a FB2Forum project?
Any sort of input, opinions, experience would be helpful, even starting with the basics of current best practices for FB integration with PHPBB to boost or at least preserve activity.
